We are emerging from our travel fog. My kids have been more emotional than normal, but their resilience has amazed me, also their ability to sleep twelve hours straight and fall asleep standing. My own resilience has been lacking: exhaustion makes me snappy. I need a shirt that says, “I’m not this mean in real life.”
My youngest just curled up in my lap while I looked at photos of our trip on my computer.
She summed it up, “Mom, I miss Africa and our people.”
That just about sums up my feelings exactly.
